Our Client was charged with a DUI. Because he refused to take a breath test, his license was summarily suspended by statute and he was not permitted to drive. We demanded a hearing to rescind that Statutory Summary Suspension. At the hearing, the prosecution failed to meet their burden of proof and our request to have our Client's driving privileges reinstated was granted. The Statutory Summary Suspension was granted!
Our Client had been sentenced to a period of Probation. Anxious to put his matter behind him, our Client asked us to petition the Court the terminate his probation early. Initially, we asked for the early termination back in February. The Judge denied our request at that time. However, we tried again a couple of months later and were successful. Our Client's period of probation was terminated early and terminated satisfactorily.
Our Client was charged with Felony Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. Our Client had previous been convicted of a sexual assault case and sentenced to prison. Upon being release, he was advised that he was required to register a sex offender within 3 days. Our Client did not register for over a year. Once arrested, our Client made a statement that he knew he was supposed to register but he didn't and after some time passed he knew he would be arrested if he tried to register. Our Client was facing up to 10 years in prison for this offense. Based on the nature of the charges, we were not able to achieve a probation result for our Client. However, after a conference with the Judge, we were able to negotiate the minimum prison sentence allowed of 2 years. We got our Client credit for all of his time in custody. As a result, our Client should be home in time for the Holidays.
Our Client was charged with Felony Possession of Cannabis. A State Trooper pulled a car over for an obstructed license plate and crack in the windshield. Our Client was a passenger in that car. The Trooper claims to have immediately smelled cannabis coming from the vehicle when he approached for a field interview. Our Client allegedly admitted to having almost $1,000 of weed in the car. Although the case went beyond the Preliminary Hearing, we were able to negotiate a deal with the prosecution for special expungeable probation. If our Client successfully completes the probation, he will be able to get this arrest and avoid a felony conviction.
